Wow I need to read this later after the DNC.
 
This is the Wartime Broadcasting Service. This country has been attacked with nuclear weapons. Communications have been severely disrupted, and the number of casualties and the extent of the damage are not yet known.

Part of good nuclear preparedness for a country is thinking about how to tell the public that the world has come to an end. The BBC spent some time preparing for this in the early 1970's, and wrote out a full script -- to be read on-air by Peter Donaldson -- in case the worst should happen. If Nixon's speech prepared in case Apollo 11 failed is known as the "best speech never given," you might consider this to be the "speech we are happiest was never given."

I don't really know what to tell you about this, except that it's hard to tell reality from +Scarfolk Council some days. If you go over to @NuclearAnthro on Twitter, he's sharing all sorts of other stuff of that sort, and you'll really get a sense of how insane the world can get.

If this is all too depressing, you can read Nixon's planned speech here instead. It's sad, but very beautiful. (With one slight correction: IIRC, the burial service to have followed this was almost like the one for burial at sea, but it would "commend their bodies to the utmost deep")

Hazard a Guess? The riskiest science quiz you will ever take!:  100%  55%  20%  5% To see the answer, scroll down below the image. More than 110 sinkholes formed in the Dover area of Florida during a freeze event in January 2010. Ground water levels dropped to record-setting lows as farmers pumped water to irrigate their plants for protection from the cold temperatures. The sinkholes destroyed homes, roads and sections of cultivated areas. Photograph Credit: Ann Tihansky, USGS The correct answer is 20%. About 20% of the Nation is underlain by karst, which is characterized by terrain where the underlying rock can be dissolved by groundwater and is consequently vulnerable to the earth collapsing. Sinkholes are common in these areas and can be as sudden as they are devastating. Individuals can check if they live in areas underlain by soluble rock through county offices, local or state geological surveys, or USGS maps.  Click here to learn more.   "Hazard a Guess?" is an ongoing series, so check out past questions and come back soon for more. Don't forget to share these with friends and family to help raise awareness of natural hazards. #hazards

// Handwritten ledgers show $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments designated for Mr. Manafort from Mr. Yanukovych’s pro-Russian political party from 2007 to 2012, according to Ukraine’s newly formed National Anti-Corruption Bureau. Investigators assert that the disbursements were part of an illegal off-the-books system whose recipients also included election officials. //
An examination of the activities of Paul Manafort shows how he benefited from powerful interests that are now under scrutiny.

No. Burnout is caused when you repeatedly make large amounts of sacrifice and or effort into high-risk problems that fail. It's the result of a negative prediction error in the nucleus accumbens. You effectively condition your brain to associate work with failure.

This is a really interesting insight, and worth keeping in mind.
I remember reading this published insight[1] from Marissa Mayer a few months ago: Burnout is caused by resentment. Which sounded amazing, until this guy who dated a neuroscientist commented[2]: No. Burnout is caused when you repeatedly make large amounts of sacrifice and or effort into high-risk ...

Primes with no sevens

This is a prime number whose decimal digits are all ones.  It has 317 ones.  It's not the world record.  The number with 1031 ones is also known to be prime! 

Even larger guys like this are suspected  to be prime.  Are there infinitely many?   Mathematicians believe so, but they can't prove it.

Why do they believe it?   The main reason is that they have an estimate of the "probability" that a number with some number of digits is prime. We can use this to guess the answer to this puzzle.

Of course the whole idea of "probability" is a bit weird here.  A number is either prime or not: the math gods do not flip coins to decide which numbers are prime! 

Nonetheless, treating primes as if  they were random turns out to be useful.   Mathematicians have made many guesses using this idea, and then proved these guesses are right, using a lot of extra work.

Of course it's subtle.  If I wrote down a number with 317 twos in its decimal expansion, you'd instantly know it's not prime - because it would be even.

In the European Congress of Mathematics, a number theorist named James Maynard just announced something cool.  There are infinitely many prime numbers with no sevens in their decimal expansion!

And his proof works equally well for any other number: there infinitely many primes without 0 as a digit, or 1, or 2, or 3, or 4, or 5, and so on.

This is big news, but not because mathematicians really care about primes with no sevens in them.  It's because proving something like this requires a deep and delicate understanding of "the music of primes" - the way prime numbers are connected to wave patterns.  For more on that, here's something easy to read:

https://plus.maths.org/content/missing-7s

Thanks to +Luis Guzman for pointing out this article, and thanks to +David Roberts for finding James Maynard's paper on this subject, which is here:

• James Maynard, Primes with restricted digits, http://arxiv.org/abs/1604.01041.

He shows that if your base b is sufficiently large, you can find infinitely many primes that are lacking a chosen set of digits, where this set can contain up to b^(23/80) of the digits.  Unfortunately I don't see  how large b must be - he may not have worked this out.  If b = 10 counts as sufficiently large, then since 10^(23/80) is about 1.94, this result would let you avoid any one digit in base 10, but not two.  In any event, he does prove, separately, that you can find infinitely many primes that avoid any one digit in base 10.

  It uses cool techniques, like "decorrelating Diophantine conditions which dictate when the Fourier transform of the primes is large from digital conditions which dictate when the Fourier transform of numbers with restricted digits is large".  It also uses ideas from Markov process theory - that is, the theory of random processes - as well as hard-core number theory concepts.

This is a new technology that I can only describe as "unbelievably cool." The idea is simple, if you've ever held a glass up to sunlight: when light passes through a curved, transparent surface, it gets bent and forms patterns when it lands. What this company has done is worked out an algorithm that lets them delicately shape pieces of glass so that the resulting pattern forms any image you want.

The result feels like magic: you're holding what looks like normal glass in your hand, but as the light shines through it, it projects an image.

There's nothing actually magical at all, of course; the challenges are all in some algorithmics to compute the right surface shape, and in the practicalities of shaping glass so precisely. But as the video evidences, the results are beautiful. I can't wait to see this hit the market.

I love this dentistry place! Dr. Joey and his staff are incredible and have done a terrific job making my daughter feel great during her visits to the dentist. They sing the ABCs when they clean her teeth, give her awards, etc and more importantly they keep her teeth in check and clean! Highly recommend it.
